Paso Nuevo, Fall 2017

 Friday, December 15, 2017 at 8 pm

 Performed in Spanish with English surtitles, the presentation is directed by Mauricio Pita. Appropriate for all ages.

Through my Eyes is a series of short scenes that reflect the scope of the teenage experience. A teenager from El Salvador recounts her journey crossing borders to reach the United States. Each stop along the way tackles our youth’s perspectives on issues related to love, racism, coming out, bullying, self-esteem, immigration, and how to find solidarity and comradery in a dangerous world.

The show is the culmination of a three-month process that brought together ethnically diverse youth from throughout the DC area to explore self-expression through theatre.

The Paso Nuevo participants are Melissa Cadena, Estefany Chávez, Moisés Cisneros, Diana Contreras, Elena Encarnación, Moisés García, Fátima González, Vidal González, Kimberly Hernández, Fayola Jean, Tania Latin, Marselina López-Fuentes, Moris Marcia-Martínez, Brenda Mijango, Jonathan Miranda, Karte Mponda, Doanna Ngyuyen, Marco Rivera, William Sánchez, and Ericka Valencia.
